HOG WILD! (2022) - for Solo Tuba
HOG WILD! was commissioned by Brendan Ige in the Summer of 2022. The objective of the commission was to create a virtuosic, flashy piece for Brendan that pushed the limits of what is possible on the tuba. HOG WILD! is meant to be comedic, mocking virtuosity for the sake of virtuosity. HOG WILD! requires highly advanced range, flexibility, technical abilities, dynamic and tempo control, constant attention to articulation, meter, and rhythm, and the ability to execute several different types of extended techniques. Given the difficult nature of the piece, the tonal centers are kept in relatively “easy” keys.
